Pumpkin and mum sale set for Sept. 28

BIG RAPIDS — The time is ripe to think fall, and the Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital Auxiliary is making it easy for residents to pick up their pumpkins and mums.

The auxiliary's annual pumpkin and mum sale will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28, at the Big Rapids Hospital entrance. The sale is one of the largest fundraisers of the year for the group, which is 501(c)3 nonprofit that regularly provides scholarships and donates funds to the Spectrum Health Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals Foundation. The foundation raises money to provide both facilities with needed items from IV rods to audiovisual equipment.

Pumpkins of all sizes and mums of all colors will be available for purchase and are locally grown.
